We've been buzzing with excitement for months in anticipation for this one and while we've been dropping hints all over the place we're finally and officially announcing the Australian debut of Peggy Gou at OXFORD ART FACTORY this November.
Peggy's been on our radar since her mixes starting appearing on Soundcloud and we've loved watching her blow up. In 2016 alone she released four records on Technicolour, Rekids (Official) and Phonica Records White and has since received high praise from The Guardian, Mixmag, Stamp The Wax and XLR8R. She's been remixed by Terekke and Galcher Lustwerk and can name Highlife artist Esa and Italian duo Nu Guinea as her mentors. And THAT'S why she's the most talked about newcomer of the past year.
While our teen years saw us exiled to our bedrooms, Peggy spent hers in exile in London studying fashion and working at Phonica. It was here that she began to dig deeper into the underground and where she found the music that she loved. Now based in Berlin, she describes the city as giving her music tastes a bit of an upgrade and has just spent the Summer playing all the important festivals around Europe. Her DJ sets have been described as an "assured, kinetic combination of dark, pulsing house and techno, broken beat and abstract composition" so we'll definitely be posting a bunch of our favourite Peggy mixes as we count down the days to her debut.
So bring your giraffes, bring your shoes, November 17 - Peggy Gou!
